Moxie Author Jennifer Mathieu Free download Ó 2 Th always following the rulesViv’s mom was a punk rock Riot Grrrl in the ’90s so now Viv takes a page from her mother’s past and creates a feminist zine that she distributes anonymously to her classmates She’s just blowing. 4 Stars a feminist It s not a bad word After today it might be my favorite word Because really all it is is girls supporting each other and wanting to be treated like human beings in a world that s always finding ways to tell them they re not Okay I ll admit it I was so nervous about reading this I absolutely consider myself a feminist but I also think writing a fiction book about a politicalsocial movement is tricky It s very easy to lose focus on the characters and story or even worse end up with a bunch of weak stereotypes that exist only to promote the primary message Not the case here The character s aren t just a teaching tool to talk about feminism Feminism is a teaching tool for the characters Our MC Vivian has a fully formed character arc that works in conjunction with the plot as she accidentally starts a feminist club at her school It all worked very well together to give us an awesome story about change and revolution Speaking of none of the characters were stereotypes Nothing was condensed down to black or white The character s weren t divided into good feminist and some bad other but instead allowed to be flawed and dynamic just like real people Vivian s best friend has reservations about using the word feminism Vivian s love interest who self identifies as a feminist still holds some problematic views Vivian herself makes judgments and holds opinions that are uestionable and discussed as she matures There was focus on growth than shaming anyoneFemale friendship is still all too rare in YA and this book has it in spades Each chapter is filled with girls supporting laughing debating and learning from each other I especially appreciated how Vivian s friendship with Claudia wasn t dismissed just because she also befriends the new girl Lucie Girls of different races orientations classes and walks of life not only work together but revel in their friendships My only complaint is that as much as I loved the story I couldn t help but feel the writing was a little bland There was a complete lack of sensory details and all the descriptions were pretty plain I understand the story and characters were the front of the story but I wouldn t have minded a little oomph to draw me in ya know Also it s not that make me a sandwich jokes are rare god help us but there s an instance where a boy interrupts a girl just to say the punchline It didn t feel very organic and felt even off in a book so grounded in realism In Conclusion Really fun really empowering contemporary where the character s and their relationships are the focus to open awesome discussions about feminism Some of my favorite uotes I ve never thought about it like that That a white girl always wins Well no offense sas Kiera eyeing me but you re white so you wouldn t have And you telling me not all guys are like that doesn t really help me feel better Because some guys are like that A lot of them actually Making girls monitor their behavior and their appearance because boys are supposedly unable to control themselves That is one of the oldest fucking tricks in the book It s like I m living in a feminist fantasy Lucy says But it can t be a complete fantasy because Roxane Gay isn t here Anyway this review is like 34 years late but this was a buddy read with the one who doesn t appreciate my mango jokes Tucket's Travels Francis Tucket's Adventures In The West 1847 1849 The Tucket Adventures #1 5 creates a feminist zine that she distributes anonymously to her Hostile and

Moxie Author Jennifer Mathieu Free download Ó 2 Off steam but other girls respond Pretty soon Viv is forging friendships with other young women across the divides of cliues and popularity rankings and she realizes that what she has started is nothing short of a girl revolution. This is what it means to be a feminist Not a humanist or an eualist or whatever But a feminist It s not a bad word After today it might be my favorite word Because really all it is is girls supporting each other and wanting to be treated like human beings in a world that s always finding ways to tell them they re not A book about a teen girl coming into her own as a feminist and learning how to fight back against the patriarchy and rape culture do you think I could have clicked reuest on this ARC any faster than I did PLOTAt Vivian s high school she s used to certain things being fact the football players get away with everything dress codes only affect girls and sexual harassment is just part of everyday life When Vivian starts to delve into her mother s Riot Grrrl past however she realizes maybe things don t have to be this way so she forms Moxie an anonymous school zine that invites other girls to band together and fight backRiot Grrrls were into feminism obviously but up until this moment in the gym I didn t think of them as feminists so much as super cool girls who took no shit WHAT I LIKED This is in a nutshell a YA contemporary about feminism and that s a topic that most authors aren t willing to touch with a ten foot pole Not only does Jennifer Mathieu tackle the issue she does it with finesse and smoothness INTERSECTIONALITY Vivian is given a firsthand lesson in the problematic aspects of white feminism and learns how to take the extra steps needed to ensure complete inclusion of all women not just the white girls Growth and development When we first start the story Vivian has a few problematic views on things but she is open to listening and learning There are even a few times where she admits to bristling a little over things she is taught but she uickly puts her knee jerk reactions aside and listensWe also watch several other characters grow a lot as in the case with Viv s best friend who turns her nose up at the thought of feminism in the beginning of the book but as she learns about the movement she steadily becomes open minded until she is finally proud to call herself a feminist too When Viv first starts creating the Moxie zines and working towards dismantling the school s patriarchal system she s so gung ho about it that she tends to fly off the handle whenever anyone says anything incorrect I think a lot of feminists have been in her shoes I know I have and it took me a few years to learn that I don t have to get angry at every person who hasn t been educatedWhile the book doesn t promote turning the other cheek regarding people who willfully ignore sexism or any other relevant ism it does promote giving people the chance to learn and grow and that is so important Rome wasn t built in a day guys and you can t undo a lifetime of indoctrination in one conversation but when people are making an effort to learn the most helpful thing we can do is give them a healthy chance Moxie addresses rape culture head on So many people don t realize how many ways rape culture affects our day to day lives and I was delighted to watch Vivian not only come to realize how much it affected her and her friends but to watch her fight back against it There s even an aspect where she touches on the fact that men regardless of their stance on feminism cannot fully comprehend what women go through and I swear I almost put the book down to applaud Jennifer Mathieu for having the guts to go thereI m totally sure he s not doing it on purpose but Seth is a guy and he can t ever know what it feels like to walk down a hallway and know that you re getting judged for the size of your ass or how big your boobs are He ll never understand what it s like to second guess everything you wear and how you sit and walk and stand in case it doesn t attract the right kind of attention or worse attracts the wrong kind He ll never get how scary and crazy making it is to feel like you belong to some big Boy Monster that decides it can grab you and touch you and rank you whenever and however it wants WHAT I DIDN T LIKEMy only complaint about this book and the reason I gave it 4 stars instead of 5 is that the story itself relies so heavily on the feminist aspect that the parts in between where we re just focusing on Viv s daily life friendships romance etc fall short a little The writing felt very young at times and I actually had to remind myself several times that Viv was a junior in high school because a lot of her wording and inner monologues just felt like they were coming from a 14 or 15 year old at most FINAL VERDICTIs this book flawless as a contemporary No It s a little mediocre on the story telling aspect Is this book a brilliant and fun example of what feminism is intended to be however Absolutely Whether you consider yourself a feminist or not I feel like everyone could learn something from this book and you might even be surprised by how hard some of the uotes hit home Thank you to NetGalley and Roaring Brook Press for the ARC All opinions expressed in this review are entirely my ownYou can also find this review on my blog here
